Fire at the Apiary of Holy Trinity Monastery

admin | 11 January 2014

On Thursday, January 9, 2014 around 2:00 PM the building in the apiary used for extracting honey burnt down along with some adjoining sheds. The equipment used in extracting honey was damaged beyond repair.  Emergency crews from various departments responded and put out the fire, preventing other buildings from burning. Thank God various gas tanks that were in the area were removed in time. Holy Trinity Monastery would like to express its gratitude to all the departments that responded. We ask for the prayers of the faithful for God’s protection and well being of the monastery.

This incident has brought to our attention more acutely the need to continue upgrading all the electrical and plumbing problems in the monastery. We appreciate your continued assistance for general repairs in all these areas.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
